We perform a wide range of choral music - from classical choral repertoire to contemporary compositions. We occasionally take the opportunity to introduce our audiences to music that may be performed less often.

From Bach to the Beatles, folk songs to Fauré, Mozart to modern composers - there is something for everyone. Take a look at our repertoire over the years below, and if you are interested in the HCS Full Repertoire including performers just click on the title to download.
